- Professional Photography - To help ensure you are able to capture the magic of your baby’s first days, we have partnered with Impressions Photography. During those first precious hours following your delivery, a photographer will take professional photographs of your newborn in a hospital studio located in close proximity to the postpartum suites. Each sitting, which can take as little as 10 minutes, is a family-focused event with options from traditional to contemporary shots. Photos can be accessed via a password protected site and shared with family and friends across the country and around the world. Once you have se-lected the shots you would like to keep, photos are developed overnight so that you will have prints on hand for your little one’s homecoming. Best of all there is no sitting fee, no obligation to purchase and digital files are never discarded should you decide to purchase at a later date. To schedule a photography sitting, call 615.396.5437.
- Thursday’s Baby - One way we celebrate the special deliveries at Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital is through Thursday’s Baby, a sponsored television segment featuring the first baby born each Thursday. You can view Thursday's Baby during Thursday's News Channel 5 evening newscasts, in Sunday's Murfreesboro Post or online at our Youtube channel.
